Saudi Arabia 50 Riyal 1968
I haven't been updating the numismatic side of this blog. Actually I have bought a few currency notes but I have been a tad too busy to scan them to put up on the blog.
One of the last few which arrived is my purchases of old Saudi riyals. I managed to get this particular 1968 50 riyal note. It's 40 years old and about the same age as Brunei's first Sultan Omar Ali note of 1967. This riyal note series is the last before the portraits of the Kings of Saudi Arabia appears on it, the first of which is 1976. Early Saudi notes are interesting as they carry no King's portraits on them.
